New York City’s new ferry service will give jobs to 200 New Yorkers when it sets sail this summer, according to the latest announcement from City Hall.
“It’s official: Citywide Ferry is now hiring!” said New York City Economic Development Corporation President and CEO James Patchett. “With our new homeport at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, we’re ensuring all 200 of these living-wage ferry jobs are located here in the five boroughs.”
The new service will offer three new routes to the Rockaways, South Brooklyn and Astoria, and will connect to the existing East River Ferry route. Eventually, service will expand to six routes with 20 vessels, operating at 21 landings across New York City.
“Once Citywide Ferry launches this summer, we’ll be connecting New Yorkers to even more good jobs in industries like tech and manufacturing all along the city’s waterfront,” Patchett said.
